Safe & Secure Skies

For too long airport workers have been forced into low-paid, insecure jobs while airlines and airports make billions of dollars in profit.

Workers are struggling, some with just 15 hours per week, below award wages and gruelling split shifts which force workers to sleep at the airports.

But we are fighting back. Our airport committees are organising workers right across the aviation sector from cabin crew, security staff, ground handlers, cleaners, caterers, pilots, refuellers and check-in staff. We are serving claims on the nation’s wealthy airports to demand better jobs.

We’re fighting for a safe and secure aviation industry that will lift standards for all airport workers. We’re fighting for the same pay for the same job. We’re holding wealthy airports and airlines to account for safety and fairness.
